Working Manuscript of the the Big Book

I was on 12Steprecovery.com and saw that there was a book available that I had been hearing about for a while. The title is "The Book That Started it All: A working manuscript of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

It is incredible! It has the original typed text of the Big Book before it was ever published with handwritten notes in the margins. Originally Bill W. sent this manuscript out to the groups for feed back. Some of the annotations were really great and changes were made to…

A Village

I like this concept of Sober Village.   One thing I know about recovery is that there is no way I could do this without meetings or the fellowship.   Can you imagine sitting at home alone with the Big Book, working the steps without discussing them with anyone, and being able to stay sober and gain some sobriety??    I can’t.   How would I have heard things like,  “don’t drink no matter what”;  don’t leave before the Miracle happens” or any of the other quips and quotes we have in AA and…

Faith Vs. Fear

My recovery has evolved to the point where I am better able to trust my higher power to provide everything I need. I am older and wiser now, however, it is the 12 steps that have transformed me. I had a sponsor once who told me that each day God gives me 24 hours worth of everything I need; shelter, food, courage, strength, serenity, love...everything. When I can stay in today, I find that she was exactly right.I have…

My Journey

I am sorry, but I had to delete my blog, someone in my family saw it on here, and guessed my identity, and I no longer felt safe with it out here. I still encourage everyone to open up and post their true feelings on here, but to also be careful and maybe edit out personally identifying info.

The Language of Letting Go

January 20th

New Beginnings



Resentments are the blocks that hold us back from loving others and ourselves. Resentments do not punish the other person; they punish us. They become barriers to feeling good and enjoying life. They prevent us from being in harmony with the world. Resentments are hardened chunks of anger. They loosen up and dissolve with forgiveness and letting go.



Letting go of…

Step II

I am so grateful that god continually restore me to sanity. My insanity manifest itself in so many different ways (despite being sober for over 3 years). With each and every day more is revealed to me. This illness is so cunning, baffling, and powerful. I am grateful that I haven't given up on god and god hasn't given up on me. I am so grateful that this power greater than myself knows what its doing because I have no idea. If it were up to me nothing would ever change but I pray for gods…

Walking through fear...

f there is one things that I've learned in 2011 it is how truly powerless I am. Step one is a beautiful step: We conceded to our innermost self that we are alcoholic, we admit that we have an illness, and that our lives are unmanageable because of us.... because of our perceptions, expectations, and defects of character. It is stated that this is not only true during our drinking and/or using days but also all throughout our journey of sobriety. How can this be? We have a disease…

Travel Woes

Man oh man, what a rough weekend. I had to travel up to Santa Rosa CA for a work project this past weekend.



After a not to successful event Sat :( I went to my hotel and crashed.



Sunday I had to get up at 5:00am to catch my flight back to LA. Santa Rosa is just a small airport, and the plane was one of those smaller two row planes. Well, the "check engine" light was on I guess, and they couldn't get it to shut off. Flight canceled...



Because it's a small airport,… Continue

Building a Sober Community

Hello everyone.



I just wanted to post a little update on Sober Village and how it's going. Building a sober community is sometimes more difficult than I thought. Easier in someways, but harder as well. When I began building Sober Village I thought that if I just provided a place for sober people to chat with each other, discuss their sobriety, and maybe have some online 12 step meetings, they would just flock here in droves. ha… Continue

New Features and Community for Sober Village

Ok everyone,



I've been burning some of the midnight oil to get the site up and running. I've been working a lot on the community functions of the site. mainly things like the chat room and forum.



I've added a section the forum for daily check ins. Sometimes, it can help to just drop a line a few times a week to let everyone know how your are doing in your sobriety. That's the whole point of the community. You can find the forum here -… Continue
